What becomes a villain most?
The American Film Institute and I never agree on lists. The heroes and villains list included.
See, I'm a villain kind of girl. I like my guys dark and dangerous. The bad guys in films and books always seem to have more depth. The heroes are mostly whitewashed and predictable.
My perfect villain is quiet. Mysterious. He has to be dastardly and underhanded, yet with a certain charm and sexiness about him that makes you want to take him home and ride him until morning (this does work for female villains as well). He should be sinister, but always with a method to his madness. None of this running around town hacking up hookers because he has a small penis. No, my villain fights for guts and glory. He doesn't want to conquer the world, he is much happier bringing the head of his boss's enemy back to him on a gilded stick, preferably on fire. His prize is usually money, but for him, every win against an enemy is a personal victory. He does not need scantily clad girls sent to him by his boss, because victory and the death of his opponent is enough for him. He is driven by demons of his past, several broken hearts and the memory of his beloved dog who was killed by his neighbor when he was young. And speaking of driving, his vehicle of choice is just as sleek, sexy and powerful as he is.
So who fits this bill? Who do you think my ultimate villain is? Well, they have not yet invented the character who has all these traits, but there is still one movie villain that, for me, reigns above all other dark and nasty characters.

Boba Fett, the greatest villain there ever was.
